Seaworld is awesome. This is the second year in a row that we have taken a trip to San Diego just to go to Seaworld. The best part about Seaworld is they support our troops. They are part of Hero's Salute which allowed my family to go to Seaworld free of charge. During the Shamu show they had all military members (past and present) and their families stand up and be saluted. I thought that was awesome and heart touching. The one thing at Seaworld that is a MUST DO is feeding the dolphins. You pay $5 for a tray with about 6 fish on it and you get to pet and feed the dolphins. This is a memory that our children will have for a lifetime. I suggest you plan your time at Seaworld wisely. Don't walk back and forth from one side of the park to the other, try to see each part and then move on to the next. Your feet will thank you, and you will see more of the park. When we went to Seawold last year it cost about $80 for a family of 4 to eat. But this year we brought back our cups and were able to get them refilled instead of paying almost $10 for a drink, and also we found a deli near the Clydesdale horses and Budweiser area that has sandwiches big enough for 2 for $8 each. My biggest complaint is we made the trip with a 4 month old this time and not all of the restrooms had baby changing areas. They have special baby changing stations that come equip with a rocking chair for nursing. It was a great idea, but wasn't very clean. All in all our trip was great. We will definitely go back again.
This is an awesome place to take you children. I have a 7 and 3 old and they oved it so much that we are going back. My 7yr old got to swim with the dolphins, an experiance she will never forget. it was awesome. Its a bit pricey but is all worth it..
Love the shows, fantastic exhibits, beautiful San Diego weather to enjoy while spending the day outside in the park. I always love to feed the dolphins when I go. Great play area and water play areas for little ones. My toddler loved it all. The only downside is waiting in line for mediocre overpriced food.
I just moved back to Southern California last year due to a job transfer and the first thing I did was purchase annual passes for Disneyland and Sea World for my family. Buying an annual pass to Sea World has been the best investment I have made for our So Cal entertainment dollars. The shows are great, the food is pricey but very good, and the overall atmosphere is great. Not a lot of sensory overload like Disneyland, but fun and educational for the kids and kids at heart. Did I also mention that the park is pretty clean too?
If you buy a annual pass to Sea World, I would suggest spending a few more dollars and get the "Platinum" level pass. You get all kinds of cool perks like free admission to all of the other Anheuser Busch parks (Sea World Orlando, Sea World San Antonio, Busch Gardens, etc.), special seating at all of the shows, discounts on food and merchandise, and preferred "Platinum" parking.
We've been to Sea World 8X since we bought the passes and got more than our money's worth. Definitely an annual pass that we will renew next year. The other cool thing about the annual pass is that you can pay it on a monthly basis. If you choose that option, it renews automatically.
IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! SO CONVENIENT TIME WISE. NO WAITING IN LONG LINES FOR ANYTHING. MY CHILDREN LOVED ALL OF THE ANIMALS AND THE FACT THAT THEY HAD THE CHANCE TO ACTUALLY TOUCH THEM. ALSO THE LUNCH BUFFET WITH THE WHALES WAS VERY VERY COOL. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. BEST EXPERIENCE FOR A FAMILY TO HAVE TOGETHER.
We enjoyed this place so much. From feeding and petting the dolphins to dining next to killer whales, the whole thing was amazing. What topped it off was the Believe show, really good stuff. There was nothing bad that I could say about here, I would go back in an instant.
We spent two days at SeaWorld. My 2 year old daughter loved it and won't stop saying "Shamu"! The first day we were a little disappointed. There were areas closed off and rides under repair. We went in March so we kind of expected that might happen as they were getting ready for the busy season. With a 2 year old this is a much better place than the San Diego Zoo. The animals are closer and there is more interaction. She even sat through all the shows we attended. Yes you do have to show up 15-20 minutes early for these shows....but come on what do you expect in a place like that. You have to show up that much early to get a good seat at the local movie theater! We spent a little extra money and did the breakfast with Shamu one morning and i must say it was the greatest thing we could have done. One of the downfalls is the price of food at the park.....which i could understand if it was good food....I expected better. But the breakfast will Shamu deal offered us a great breakfast buffet to fill up on and we ate the breakfast just a few feet from Shamu. Plus stuffing ourselves with the all you can eat buffet prevented us from having to snack throughout the day. If you have kids this is a great idea as well. Shamu is close and the crowd is very very small. When we go back in a few years, we will definately spend our time at SeaWorld and will skip the Zoo. But in my opinion you have to try everything and have an open mind and decide what you like. My family and I loved almost everything about SeaWorld. One finally thought though, and kind of a big one, the Shamu show could have been better. It was pretty amazing don't get me wrong, but we all expected more and maybe longer than 15 minutes. Dont go into that show expecting it to be the best show at Seaworld, because I would put it 3rd behind the Sealions and the dolphins. All in all it was a great time, and beautiful weather.
We had a discount card for the San Diego area, but the SeaWorld was the only thing that wasn't covered on the card. I do wish it was. $45-$56 a person is a hard bill to swallow with two young kids and a vacation. BUT after the whole experience I would recommend it. WOW. Such great displays and out of this world animal fun.
We did get discounted tickets for Dine with Shamu and I would recommend this to anyone. It is a bit costly but worth it. We ended up being seated right next to the tank and I could have reached over the tank wall and touch the killer whale. It was extremely WILD.
If you had to pick one animal to watch I would choose the Polar Bears playing. WOW they are a beautiful animal, (catch the Polar bears at the zoo too)
